What Side Dish Should I Serve With Grilled Salmon?

Updated November 21, 2016

Potatoes are always an ideal accompaniment to fish. Try roasted potatoes, thinly sliced scallop potatoes with onion, or a creamy potato gratin. Alternatively boiled rice or pasta are well suited to grilled salmon. Creamy or buttery sauces work well with salmon and pasta. Boiled winter vegetables such as broccoli and carrots can also be served.

Potatoes are always an ideal accompaniment to fish. Try roasted potatoes, thinly sliced scallop potatoes with onion, or a creamy potato gratin. Alternatively boiled rice or pasta are well suited to grilled salmon. Creamy or buttery sauces work well with salmon and pasta.

Lighter Side Dishes

For a lighter meal, try serving with a side salad. Pickles complement salmon well, so add a few sparingly into the salad. Alternatively stir-fry courgettes, peppers, onions and any other vegetable you fancy and serve. Chilled relishes such as yoghurt and cucumber dip can be a great accompaniment too.

Bottom Line

The best side dish depends on the time of year and how hungry you and your guests are. Salmon is a light yet substantial food, so pairing it with carb-laden sides such as potatoes or pasta will make it a more filling meal ideal for winter. In the summer it's best to serve with a light salad or vegetables.
